Welcome to The Verdict!

Purpose built for the acoustic performance of live jazz in 2012, our wonderful Club room contains a baby Offenbach grand piano, a house drum kit and a PA system on stage. A cabaret table set out and optional private bar area nestled at the back, makes it the perfect spot for a cosy and intimate event. As Brighton's only dedicated jazz club and rated one of Europe's top ten, we really can offer you a unique private event setting.  

Roxanne @ The Verdict can plan the perfect party for you inclusive of live jazz music and catering. All bookings include a fully staffed and licensed bar until 1am. Extras that will make your event memorable include customised cocktail lists, arrival drinks, delicious menu offerings ranging from a la carte, buffet or canapes and our real passion for delivering you a heartwarming, relaxing and good value experience.

Throughout the week the Club and cafe/restaurant area are available for hire either together or separately, it's the perfect size venue for public speaking/mini-conferencing, stand-up comedy, small theatre productions, fundraisers and spoken word events. The Club itself is currently used and perfectly suited to rehearsals, recording (film or sound) workshops and plenty more. We even have holistic bookings such as Pilates and massage.

Private parties

Parties are for non-paying guests, when you book the venue you gain full use of the Club room and cafe/restaurant area, a fully licensed bar and two members of staff ensuring you and your guests are fully taken care of until 1am.

As pictured you can decorate the Club according to your own taste/theme, it can be catered or non-catered, you can include use of our instruments/equipment, provide your own entertainment or we can organise it ALL for you!

Private gigs/concerts

If you are a promoter looking for a venue to host an act or an independent musician wanting to showcase an EP launch, concert or album tour show etc then we have options!


Friday & Saturday nights are reserved for our in house programming but all other evenings are potentially up for grabs. We can include ticketing and promotion, organise light rigs, sound tech and stage settings.  All costs and agreements are by negotiation.  


Currently we are the proud home to regular workshops and rehearsals for a diverse range of musicians such as the Beleza Samba Drummers pictured here.

The Club has superb purpose built acoustics and is available throughout the week with a fee of £15 per hour on a two hour minimum booking.

For open groups we can signpost you on the website and the 'order of service' on the venue door or be entirely discreet if it's a closed session or lesson.

Use of the piano is charged at an extra £5 per hour. 10% discount available for students, NHS, unemployed and charities. 





The superb acoustic and in house equipment makes our Club an excellent space to record for film and sound. Some bands choose this venue to record their live gigs, other artists hire it privately to create wonderful promo material for show reels and function work.

Rates are £15 per hour with a fixed booking fee of £25 for a half day and £50 for a whole day.

Minimum booking 4 hours.
